By a CEO Trustee
On January 11th, a frigid night in NYC, the NY Chapter of CEO Trust huddled together for dinner and stimulating conversation at the NYU Torch Club on Waverly Place in Greenwich Village. The Torch Club is a wonderful venue, generally only available to NYU faculty and Alumni. The evening had two main discussion topics. One was a great discussion on the human resource issues facing business in today’s rapidly changing environment. Discussion topics included:
- How to instill and maintain an ethical culture in the workplace and the particular challenges of doing this with a mobile workforce;
- Managing and motivating millennials;
- Recruiting and retaining strong performers in an improving economy; and
- A host of other HR challenges facing today’s C-Suite executives.
The second theme (and much more fun) was hearing from CEO Trust members on favorite restaurant recommendations. Here are a few: For those who awake in the middle of the night with a langoustine craving - Vilamoura, in Johannesburg, South Africa, is the place for you. Going to the theatre in NY and looking for a fun dining experience? You may want to try Café Un Deux Trois or DB Bistro. In London and craving Sushi? Try SushiSamba (also with locations in NYC and elsewhere). On the upper east side in NY and craving Sushi? Try Ko Sushi, or stay in the area for Mediterranean at Beyoglu. Planning to visit Philadelphia? You may want to try Osteria on North Broad Street or Lo Spiedo in the old Philadelphia Naval Yard (near the sports arenas).
The evening was a big success and we made sure everyone was home in time to watch Alabama and Clemson in the national college football championship. Thanks to all the participants and to CEO Trust for arranging a great event.
